On-Farm Commercial Grain-Testing Equipment
Grain producers can evaluate their crop before harvest, while they are harvesting, or afterwards when it’s in the bin with products from Dimo’s Labtronics. The company carries more than a dozen different grain quality testing devices, from the Simpler Sampler Portable Combine to an instant read, grain temperature probe with Wi-Fi.
“Many farmers now want the same equipment used by their local elevators so they know exactly what the quality of their grain is prior to going to market,” says Jason Diehl, Dimo’s Labtronics. “In the past, many did not have this equipment and had to rely on their grain buyers for quality determination. This is no longer the case.”
Dimo’s top-selling products are moisture meters, the Labtronics Model 919 ($1,499 Canadian) and Automated Model 919 ($2,649 Canadian). The Automated Model 919 also converts official test weight into lbs./bu. and kg/hL.
The Canola Sieve Set ($149 Canadian) consists of 3 pans, one with 6.5/64 round holes, one with 0.038-in. slots and a solid bottom pan.
Dimo’s Simpler Sampler portable combine ($979 Canadian) eliminates hand threshing. The Simpler Sampler uses a beater for threshing and an adjustable air column for separation. The beater has a high speed for cereal grain crops and a low speed for oilseeds.
The company’s 9-ft. long temperature probe ($799 Canadian) with infrared sensor at the tip is Wi-Fi equipped. It gives instant readouts on multiple smartphone or other Wi-Fi devices at the same time. The probe is completely wireless.
